Abbington’s Seaview Motel and Cottages

October 24th, 2012 by Rick Wolf

14 ROOMS – 8 COTTAGES, 6 MOTEL ROOMS, all with private baths. Each cottage has one bedroom and one bath, most have decks and water views.  Just minutes from Lincolnville Beach and downtown Camden, Maine. Originally a 1950’s motor court – conveniently located on Route 1 offering wireless internet and TV in all rooms. Cottages were built in 1951 and the motel in 1985. There is a pool and lounging deck area off the back of the motel. This is a wonderful opportunity to buy a small, affordable business in a tourist destination. Some repairs and updates could take the business to the next level. Situated on 2.4 acres (noted as 067 and 067A on the map below) plus the two vacant parcels would add another 1.34 acres.

Owners quarters offers a modest one bedroom loft efficiency apartment with full bath and small kitchen. There is an office and laundry/storage room as well. You could expand the OQ into the Suite.

There are two vacant parcels of land adjacent to the motel that the sellers also own which may be purchased with Abbington’s (noted as 066 and 066A on the tax map) for $75,000 for the two lots. They are non-conforming, buildable lots and acquisition would allow the owner’s of Abbington’s to maintain the privacy and enhance the overall appeal and potentially the value of their property.

The Limestone Inn – State College, PA

October 11th, 2012 by bbteam

Just 4 miles from the hubbub and excitement of Penn State football, theater, and art activities, The Limestone Inn is an 1800’s era Federal style inn with 5 guest rooms, all with private baths.

The 1-1/4 acre property is located on the western edge of State College…close enough to enjoy the attractions of this quaint downtown but far enough away to offer a countryside home for guests to relax, sit by the creek, and listen to the waterfall wash away the hectic business of the day.

The back porch has been recently enclosed and not only allows the perfect place to relax with that second cup of coffee, but also offers a great meeting space for business meetings and group gatherings.

Business Perspective:  Occupancy level is currently in the mid-20’s with plenty of unrealized marketing opportunities for additional growth.  At this greatly reduced price, this inn is affordable to almost any aspiring innkeeper interested in owning a university town business.

Offered for $475,000, Limestone Inn has been SOLD by Scott Bushnell.
